Fall Back


Floral dress: Liberty of London for Target (remixed)
White cami: Petite Sophisticate
Yellow studded gladiators: Chinese Laundry via Ross (remixed)
Turquoise and silver bracelet: Chaps (remixed)
Blue and green beaded earrings: New York & Co. (remixed)
Flower hair stick: Cua Lo Beach, Vietnam (remixed)

This outfit is not at all creative. That's because I had a fashion crisis this morning as I was getting ready for church. I must've changed five times and that doesn't happen often. Lame.

So I went with a dress that doesn't need a whole lot of help, a fall-back outfit, if you will.


I'm trying to distract you from the fact that I've worn most of this together before by posing in our cool entry way.


See? You have to open not just one but TWO doors to get inside our house. And they're both pretty cool doors.

I've been wearing camis under this dress because it's a bit low for my tastes, and that's after I did a minor alteration by shortening the straps. I feel infinitely more comfortable after adding this bottom layer.


My favorite thing about this dress is the back, though. Those criss-crossed straps are fabulous. I love that they show off my tattoo, too. (Sorry, Mom.) I knew I wanted a tattoo when I was thirteen, but I didn't get this one until I was twenty-five (and had spent five years thinking long and hard about it). It says "Bendito Dios por Encontrarme" - Blessed be God for finding me. I got it with my aunts and my cousin in PR; I mean, the four of us got tattoos the same day. It's a testament to my thankfulness for what God has done in my life, and I figured I could live with that for the rest of my life.

I also like that it surprises people. Most people don't expect me to have a tattoo; I've always liked bucking stereotypes.
